|Whiskey and Cowboy waiting for me to unload the new straw|
I have to add more straw every month because they eat their bedding. They have green grass and they eat the same hay as the horses, but they would rather eat dry, brown straw.

I pile it high on the top and sides of their igloos to provide insulation. I also make a deep pile in the back for the goats to burrow into when the wind blows.
|Piling straw around the igloos|
There are three igloos and four goats. One of the igloos is quite small and I'm not sure that it gets used much, if at all. The straw inside is not matted down into a comfortable bed like in the others.
|The igloos before I added new straw|
I really need to get a bigger igloo -- but they cost a fortune. I'm thinking maybe a large dog house would work.
